| We believe everyone deserves the chance to work for what they believe in. That’s why, this Giving Tuesday, we’re donating $5 for every purchase made on colehaan.com through November 30, 2021 to United Way. With organizations across the nation, United Way supports work readiness and new opportunities through local career development programs that offer employment counseling, job skills training, and career coaching.
Here are five programs directly impacted by the donation:
